Pablo and his spouse work making cheese, which they sell at different markets in the town of Achacachi. Pablo lives in his own home and has five children. Two of his children work in the city of La Paz. The other three are in school in the community of Cala Cala, in the municipality of Achacachi, which is a two and a half hour journey away from the city of La Paz.
Pablo has a few cattle, which provide him with milk for his cheese production. He needs this loan in order to buy a dairy cow, which will let him increase his production and his earnings.
Pablo's dream is to acquire more cattle, increasing the production of milk in his community. This is the second time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and his first loan with Kiva. The photo attached also includes his wife.

IMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.
To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.
